David Smith is a recovering computer design engineer with a love of photography and capturing beautiful and interesting images of the world. He grew up in a small town in SD, but has lived all over the US working as an Electrical / Computer Engineer for some of the biggest names in the industry.
He says his style is "eclectic", which means he doesn't really have one. His photography encompasses everything around and where he's been lucky enough to travel to. They include mountains, deserts, beach and ocean, night photography, street photography, landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, nature and even some people pictures.
He shoots mostly digital cameras (DSLR, point-n-shoot and iPhone), but also enjoys shooting with his old film cameras, some of which are antiques. The film cameras include an old Nikon FE2, an older Yashica Mat 124 and a Bronica EC. The heaviest camera is an old Crown Graphic 4x5 Press Camera.
He says the process of shooting with film is so different from shooting with my DSLR, a point and shoot or my iPhone. With film, you really slow down, focus on finding the right framing, the right exposure and then finally take the picture. Of course, then you have to develop the film, scan it, and then pull the shots into Lightroom and Photoshop.
